People, Flora and Fauna of the Holy Land

People, Flora and Fauna of the Holy Land 2018-05-17T07:54:34+00:00

“People, Flora and Fauna of the Holy Land” is a unique and intense academic summer program that allows its students to discover the ecological and social diversity of the Holy Land through a “learning-by-traveling” approach. The geographic location of the program – a crossroad between Asia, Europe, and Africa – makes the Holy Land an international laboratory to study its high biodiversity and people. Students enrolled in “People, Flora and Fauna of the Holy Land” will take three mandatory classes: “Flora and Fauna of the Holy Land”, “Challenges and Opportunities of a Multicultural Society”, as well as a class supporting their own individual field research. Guided by faculty and staff, students will study while traveling four different regions: the Golan Heights, the Galilee, the Center of Israel and its South. The program welcomes undergraduate as well as graduate students.
